Tomato Soba with Jelly Sauce

When it gets summer, what I see on my dining table at lunchtime is cold soba! Soba is easy and quick to make, and flavors, toppings combinations are infinite, so soba lets me open up the door for the culinary journey. 


Last year I enjoyed a similar dish with Mexican squash, but this year the tomato looked bright red, and I felt they are nicely tangy yet sweet just by looking, so now I’ve gotta enjoy them! 


Fancy refreshing cold soba for your lunch under scorching Sun? You made a great choice!
